She started her career at Dassault Data Services. Like many large French companies, this firm hires engineers.
“In France,” she points out, "an engineer's education is the initial filter for getting a job, a basic requirement for many jobs, including jobs in computer science. It is a little bit elitist, in my opinion. Plus, there is no order of engineers in France, and no such thing as reserved acts for engineers."
The work experience Laurence gained in Québec also gave her the impression that the approach to projects is also different. “I notice that people approach computer science projects differently here than in France. This results in a fairly in-depth analysis depending on the size of the project."
